Tell me your life story (where you were born, raised, parents, siblings, childhood etc.)
I'm from El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula more modernly known asLos angeles, California. I was raised in California but i also spend a lot of time traveling to Mexico & Spain as a child. I have 2 biological siblings but i also have other brothers and sisters that travel with me as memories of precious moments that I've collected.
My childhood can be described best by three events:
1. playing with baby jaguars in mexico. Age 4.
2. holding the Viola for the first time. Age 6.
3. learning about the men who sold the paradise along the coast for a few pieces of gold. Age 7.
Early style influences?
My early style influences are: David Bowie, Prince, Kanye West, & most importantly Jesus Lucio my father. My father is one of my earliest childhood style influences because he taught me at a young age that the way you carry yourself only matters if you stay honest in doing so. By that he meant, never try to be someone you're not.
How did your style develop?
My style developed in various ways first and foremost I have to credit both of my parents because they are both very fashion forward and they were the basis for my style development. By analyzing their personal style i careful taught myself how to combine personal aesthetic with more culture inspired trends. I also have the most obnoxious mother who would dress me up as her favorite figures including Prince, Emiliano Zapata, & Saint Jude when i was 4 years old.
Favourite fashion moment?
Everything that Prince wore in Purple Rain (Film).
Personal styling trick?
My personal styling trick is that i never really "do" my hair.
How do you think people react to your style?
First they pause, then they become confused, eventually they realize that my style is just a visual image of the imaginative freedom I bring to more conservative or elegant styles from the past.
What are your hobbies?
Freckles & Women, a combination of both is what fascinates me most. I like giving women orgasms , making music, and reading books. I also enjoy drinking Mexican Coca Cola and am also fascinated by jaguars. (the animal)
What are your current projects?
I just finished my first Album with The Black Velvetines which you can listen to and purchase on theblackvelvetines.bandcamp.com & I also just recently moved to San Francisco to write a book of short stories & find inspiration for the second Black Velvetines’ album which I'm set to start recording in late November of this year.
What do you want to do in the future?
I want to teach. I also want to continue to write & create music. Most importantly though i want to make sure that i continue to enjoy the simple things in life like women with freckles & Mexican Coca Cola.
Any last words?
